Sail shape analysis

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Wondering if anybody out there is aware of any software which can be used to analyse sail shape photographs and is available to punters like me. - Draft position, cord depth, twist etc.

I'm aware that UK Sails have something on there website but have never managed to make it work so it would be interesting to hear from anyone who has had success with this.

Any suggestions?

North has a free downloadable program. I think google should turn it up pretty quickly. I tried to use it but failed because I kept forgetting to take pictures.

The UK sails freeware works fine and is easy to use. It has a weird way of saving the work, though.

This was done a couple months ago. The photos are out of a video I took with the phone.

Sailpack Vision, freely available. OneSails have their own version of it, though I'm not sure if there are any differences. It's available on OneSails' website.
